NORWALK - Norwalk police say they have found the woman who prompted a search when she claimed she had been kidnapped.

Officials say the 31-year-old woman was found safe at a friend's house, although she was allegedly intoxicated and high on drugs.

Authorities believed the woman was being held against her will in a home on the corner of Van Zandt and Fort Point streets, after a call involving a kidnapping claim.

Police say the ordeal began after no one was there to pick up the woman's daughter at the bus stop after school. The child was taken back to her school, where officials contacted her mother. That's when the woman claimed she was in trouble, police say.

Neighbors say their hearts go out to the little girl, especially since it was the last day of school before Christmas break.

Police say the woman has been hospitalized. Authorities have not said if she will face charges.

The Connecticut Department of Children and Families has also been notified of the incident.
